This is my story: Hopefully short

I had been on 100mg of anafranil and 150mg of wellbutrin and was sweating to the point of dripping. I also did not feel my depression was controlled enough with the wellbutrin. However my anxiety was just fine because of the anafranil. I told my doctor to try to put me on one medication for both anxiety and depression. I started with 40mg of strattera for about 5 days and noticed that immediately i felt energy and my appetite diminish. I also know that i had some increase in anxiety too. I went and started taking 60mg on friday 24th of jan. On Monday the 27th I decreased my anfranil to 50mg. As of tuesday night the 28th i started with anxiety attacks and have lasted thru wednesday. I called my doctor and asked maybe if i should stay on the 100mg of anafranil and do the 80mg of strattera. I have not recv a call back. I am going to take a 50mg of anafranil tonight (wed) and 80mg of the strattera in the morning.

I dont like giving up on meds to early. Sometimes our body has to have time to adjust to certain meds. I am going to take the 80mg and see what happens the next few days.

Strattera side effects on the sexuall part, i personally think because i am in a better mood and more energetic i am more sexually stimulated too. The appetite thing i feel fuller than usual.

My dose of strattera is taken at 8am in the morning and by 10:30pm i am ready to hit the sack. I am not in a demanding office job either so i have moderate exercise during the day watching children.

I am always reading posts so i will post back if anyone has questions.
